Michael Begnal’s Review of The City Itself

Mike Begnal has posted an excellent, intelligent review of The City Itself on his ever-bm_tci_frontcoverinteresting blog. A few extracts:

an attentive reading quickly reveals that certain overarching themes wend their way throughout: access to housing, humanity’s role(s) in the continuum of the environment, the ephemerality of existence, and language as a material (if imperfect) medium for knowing the world, among others.
 
Mills as an eco-poet is interested in understanding the ways in which people interact with, think about, and live within the environment.
 
It is a subtly absorbing reading experience, and as a collection it exemplifies some of the author’s familiar poetic strategies (if indeed you are familiar with his work), while perhaps looking forward to even further “synergies” and “mixtures.”
